NIMBY Conflict in Mumbai Over CNG Station

Mumbai (Bombay) Suburb Buys 25 CNG Buses


Mid-day. The Thane (India) Municipal Transport (TMT) is ordering 25 CNG buses from Ashok Leyland to replace older diesel buses in its fleet. Thane is a municipality in the Greater Mubai (Bombay) region.

The TMT has also entered into an agreement with the Mahanagar Gas Company to set up a CNG station at the TMT’s Wagle Estate depot.

The new buses will be in service by May.

The CNG buses cost approximately $412,000 (Rs 18 lakh), against the diesel cost of $286,000 (Rs 12.5 lakh).

Though the initial investment is on the higher side, there are other benefits. Most importantly, it will reduce pollution. Secondly, fuel expenses will reduce.

—Devdas B Chalke, chairman of the Thane Municipal Corporation’s transport committee

One liter of diesel currently costs around $0.73 (Rs 32). One Kg of CNG gas, delivering the same mileage, costs around $0.46 (Rs 20).

Ashok Leyland is a leader in India’s commercial vehicle industry. Its CNG bus uses a Hino (Toyota) CNG engine that develops 123 hp (92 kW) of power and 307 lb.-ft. (416 Nm) torque.
